Is there a difference between the two methods? I was at BevMo last night wanting to stock up for the week and celebrations ahead and in the French champagne section, I saw two that looked interesting at a great price to boot. Unfortunately, I dont' remember the name, but they were produced in France but did not say "Methode Champenoise", but rather "Methode Traditionale". What is the difference?
One was made from chardonnary grapes (the Blanc de Blanc) and the other a Blanc de Noir but because of the "Traditionale" reference, I couldn't tell if I was buying real champagne or not.
